When betting on spreads involving groups of matches (for instance selling the total goals in the Division One matches on a Saturday) different volatilities and unit stakes must be applied as the volatility of the spreads increase exponentially as the the number of matches increases.

The following tables documents a sample of the volatilities of the various spreads generally on offer from the spread betting firms for groups of 6 to 8 matches as detailed in the spreadsheets. The Excel spreadsheets for the 2003/2004 season contain all the volatilities for groups of 4 to 12 matches and are sent to all members free of charge.
